Why is optimization needed for routing and distribution?
The routing and distribution of goods often represents a large portion of a company’s costs. In order to drive profitability, companies must make wise decisions about which assets to invest in, and how to best utilize the assets they have. While most companies have invested in execution systems to run their routing and distribution operations, these systems require the correct business policies and parameters in order to maximize efficiency and minimize costs. Optimization is used to find the best policies and parameters.
